Hello, and welcome to the new and improved Hither & Yon

*hands you an ice cold bottle of Smartwater™*

As you came in, I’m sure you noticed the new title graphic. Isn’t it divine? The ampersand is in the latest shade of yellow from France.

To our right, you’ll see an updated sidebar, with a photo of the author that was taken sometime in the last three years. Fabulous!

If you click on her face, it will take you to her ‘About Me’ page, but that hasn’t been updated in the last three years, so don’t. I mean you can, but I have it on good authority that she is no longer a fan of vintage suitcases OR Polaroids, so it’s wildly inaccurate.

The navigation is mostly the same, with the addition of a slideshow of her Instagram photos, so you can see she’s still alive when it’s been weeks between posts.

Hopefully it won’t be weeks between posts anymore, but let’s be real, you can put a fresh coat of paint on a leopard, but it’s still a leopard. Now it’s just super angry because it’s covered in paint. Don’t do that to animals, you guys. I can’t believe I even have to mention it.

So what do you think?

I love it, I all-caps LOVE. IT.

All the props to Kelly of Kiki & Co. Creative. She knows what she’s about. Check out more of her work here.

Anyway, that’s all really.

I’m sorry for speaking in the third person earlier; that was weird. Also, I don’t have any Smartwater™ for you. Go get a drink from the faucet, don’t be wasteful.

I’ll be back later with a post on my trip to Iceland (finally).

Ok bye! ;)


  1. So thrilled with how everything turned out. You were absolutely wonderful to work with! xx

  2. Wheeeeeee I can't wait to see the Iceland post !

  3. Your posting nearly rendered me speechless.But I dug deep so I could leave a comment. Hopefully, it will encourage you to write more (e'en only as you can). I like your new space. I had feared that hashtags had replaced your space age. ♡MA (not AVGC, just MA)

  4. AVGC here, sending love and encouragement. Your new space looks lovely and I'm looking forward to reading your words. xoxoxo

  5. I like it! 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗


I love to hear what you're thinking! Thanks for the comment love. :)
